When and Where are the 2022 Track and Field World Championships?
On Friday, July 15 through Sunday, July 24, 2022, Hayward Field on the campus of the University of Oregon will host the Track and Field World Championships.
Since this is the first time the Athletics World Championships have ever been held in the United States.
Fans can anticipate a spectacular display of skill from the world’s most accomplished athletes.
Athletic competitions in track and field test competitors’ speed, agility, and accuracy in a variety of running, jumping, and throwing events.
The term “track and field” comes from the two venues where the sport is played.
The asphalt of a running track and the grass of a field where the throwing and jumping competitions take place.
Like road running, cross country running, and racewalking, track and field falls under the larger category of athletics.
